10 Fastballs: R6- Gifu Captain Interview

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege finals are played in Katowice Poland this weekend on 20-21 of May. We were able to poke the Gifu captain Niklas “Willkey” Ojalainen in the midst of preparations, and throw some fast ones with him. XP4T: For starters to warm up, how are you and how is the team? Willkey: I am just great. Keeping very busy. These few weeks before the finals are always a fine balancing act between work, the game and family. The atmosphere in the team is good and we are confident that this is our season to take the prize home [...]

Interview with a Cheat (Developer)

Interview with a Cheat (Developer)

If you’ve been playing video games for more than a week, you’re sure to have run into a cheater or two. We wanted to get in the head of a cheater/hacker so we reached out to a pretty famous one who happens to run a “game cheating” website which sells these hacks. He chose to remain anonymous, so for the rest of the interview, we’re going to refer to him simply as “L3p3r“. XP4T: How long have you been hacking and how did you get started with hacking? L3p3r: I have been making cheats for games since somewhere in the [...]

Interview with the devs: Jotun

Interview with the devs: Jotun

Here at XP4T we’re always keen on interviewing game developers, asking them about their inspirations and plans, their relations with their fans and – most importantly – their games. This time we discuss the upcoming Jotun with its creator, Will Dubé. At its core, Jotun is a well-designed arcade game in which you play Thora, “a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must face the challenges of Viking purgatory to prove herself to the Gods and enter Valhalla“. And what more challenging enemy could you imagine than an enormous jotun (giant) of Norse mythology? Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight users seem to [...]

Interview with the devs: Zpocalypse Survival

Interview with the devs: Zpocalypse Survival

Zpocalypse: Mixing combat, gathering, advancement and team strategy in a roguelite, RTS survival game set in a randomized post-apocalyptic world. The original Zpocalypse board game was borne of a frustration by Jeff Garcia at the lack of zombie board games that were, to him, interesting and engrossing. After building a team and launching a successful Kickstarter for the board game and all of its assets last year, planning for the Zpocalypse video game began. It has already been Greenlit by the Steam community, and just needs financial help to push it into a final product. With a goal of $35,000, Greenbrier is offering tier rewards from [...]

Days of Dawn

Days of Dawn

KICKSTARTING AN OLD-SCHOOL ROLE-PLAYING GAME There are a number of RPGs on kickstarter right now, pursuing the goal to bring back the old days of role-playing. We all remember them: 16-bit graphics that looks oh so horrible when we play these games again today, 8bit speaker-sound, isometric combat. Amazing games we spent most of our free time with then, because, like role-playing is supposed to be, it was all in our heads anyway. There’s a bunch of developers out there, wishing to bring back this gaming experience with today’s graphics and sound. One of them is the German Bumblebee-Studio, consisting of a number [...]

Exclusive interview with Project Eternity’s Josh Sawyer

Exclusive interview with Project Eternity’s Josh Sawyer

So what happens… when one of the most acclaimed and beloved gaming company opens a project on kickstarter? Reaching a mind blowing 1.5 million dollar goal in less than 24 hours is what! Obsidian is remembered throughout the gaming community for incredible titles such as the epic Baldur’s Gate and the award winning Fallout series. While gaming industry writers and story makers are busy squabbling over the definition of art, whether a game fits into it, and debating the idea of games as concrete and valuable storytelling mediums; Obsidian was just out there doing it. Their newest concept Project Eternity [...]
